In the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, I got to travel to a tucked-away location to photograph one of the sweetest families on vacation. We romped mountainside and enjoyed the crisp summer air in Haywood County, just outside of Waynesville.Read More
The fog covered the views that day - and we knew from many walks along the Mountain to Sea trail that there are, occasionally, breathtaking spots that just fills your soul. A window into a place. But when they are covered in fog, it’s like drawing the blinds tight to block out the sun.Read More
We celebrated Dakota in late June at his home outside of Marshall, North Carolina. With his family (Kelsey and William) and his brother and sister, we spent the evening doing everything sweet Dakota loved most.Read More
I’ve run out of shoes; I should probably get a new pair. For the summer all I have is a pair of white sandals, some blue wedges, and sneakers. Three is really all I need - except when I’m wearing mismatched nail polish that my toddler gives me.

That’s a hard place to be, discovering my own faults and failures that I cast onto her. Finding out that my daily battles aren’t always something else’s fault, that the issues of my heart are more of a consideration than I’ll believe them to be. The battles of motherhood might look different than you expect.Read More
Danielle and Ben live in a sweet, tucked away home in Asheville, North Carolina. This family can often be found outside, raising chickens and tending to their garden, and spending a lot of their time together. So much fun to photograph this family in their home!Read More

Places that feel more like a box than like a home, or more like a cage than freeing stability. Can you picture a life in a space that you struggle to love?Read More
Jess and Daniel invited me into their mountain home outside of Asheville, NC to photograph their family’s every day life. Getting to photograph their morning routine as a family was such a joyful experience I was so grateful to be a part of.Read More
